On paper, the Aventon Mataro and the State Bike Co. Black Label v2 are very similarly spec’d and similarly priced. In my experience riding and reviewing both though, liking one does not necessarily mean you will like the other. In this in depth review, find out the differences between the Aventon Mataro and the State Black Label v2 to see which one is best for you.

I recently got my new mataro and I couldn’t be anymore impressed but theres a few things that I need to change like the crank set the one I got is to boring for me so I’m getting another 60 tooth sprocket and I’ll put my new mataro through its paces

Caleb Korn says:

I gotta say I’ve loved your clips for years. however whenever you compare bikes you always seem to lack talking about the actual geometry of the bikes. it would actually explain alot of the ride quality. and head tubes. tapered and fully tapered are very different. and yeah state’s had A lot of problems and I’ve heard only good things lately so maybe they’ve gotten it together

CHANCE Cayenne says:

Both whips are pieces of TRASH! I RIDE A THRONE TRKLRD 2018, One of the best bikes i’ve owned. Aventon and State are SO OVER RATED! Granted I put several HIGH-END parts on my BABY…

would you recommend the brand INGRIA?

Jim Beauchamp says:

You mentioned a 1 pound difference in the bikes but posted 15 # 5 oz which is by the way more than the 6.9 kg also posted for the Black Label, and 19# 3 oz for the Aventon that is a very large difference and might sway a persons choice when 1 pound would not. Will you please clarify.
